A Yishun resident has become the talk of the town after an extended karaoke session that lasted from 4:00 PM to 11:59 PM, prompting complaints from neighbors who described the situation as a “singing contest” from “the neighbour from hell.” The incident was brought to public attention through a Facebook post by user Abby Hew.
“People want to sleep leh”
According to Hew’s post, the resident’s vocal prowess was not the primary concern; rather, it was the excessive volume that echoed through the entire block, causing disturbances for other residents. Some neighbors reportedly attempted to close their windows to mitigate the noise, but to no avail.
Hew recounted in her post that one resident, who was feeling unwell and attempting to get some rest, was particularly affected by the relentless karaoke performance. The singer’s renditions, not limited to popular K-MTV songs, were allegedly loud enough to drown out any other ambient sounds in the vicinity.
Please lower down volume
In her plea for consideration, Hew urged the neighbor to lower the volume, emphasizing the importance of being mindful of others, especially during late hours. The post also expressed frustration at the unrelenting nature of the performance and its impact on the community’s peace.
It remains unclear whether any formal complaints have been lodged with local authorities regarding the prolonged karaoke session. The incident has sparked discussions online about the importance of maintaining good neighborly relations and the need for individuals to be mindful of their actions, especially in shared living spaces.
